Mourinho's job isn't thought to be under threat despite the poor start to the campaign, with United hoping to build on Sunday's victory over the Clarets after the global break.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has accepted a suspended prison sentence after pleading guilty of two crimes during his time with Real Madrid.

Cape Town - Manchester United full-back Diogo Dalot has heaped praise on under-fire manager Jose Mourinho and thanked him for the faith he has shown in the youngster.

Mourinho has a contract for at least another two years having agreed fresh terms in January this year, but reports suggested that executive vice chairman Ed Woodward was considering axing the Portuguese.

United, according to sources, are still relaxed about the situation, in part beacause they have a one-year option to fall back on which could keep Pogba at Old Trafford until the summer of 2022.

On his manager, Matic said: "He knows what he is doing, for sure".

Still to come for Furyk is his final captain's pick, to be announced Monday after the BMW Championship. Unlike the relatively simple task for Furyk, Bjorn has many more hard decisions to make by Wednesday.

"We had a lot of chances in both halves and if it had been five or six I don't think anyone could have argued".

Marcus Rashford was given a straight red in the second half but Manchester United were already in the lead, beating Burnley 2-0 and winning their second game of the season. You probably know that also.

Mourinho's men responded to the crisis with a 2-0 win at Burnley on Sunday, and Matic said: "He was very confident before the game, he prepared the game in a very good way".

Which is a bold joke to make when it's also true, Mourinho now earns in the region of £15 million per year so he's probably not exaggerating about how heavy his severance fee would cost Manchester United.

But he was made captain for the opening two games of the Premier League season in the absence of Antonio Valencia and has scored twice so far.

Yeah. You can see where this is headed.
